Fall is here!
September 24, 2012
Not sure if you know already, but this past Saturday was the autumnal equinox. That means that in the northern hemisphere, Saturday was the first day of fall. And I love fall for lots of reasons. It’s getting cooler outside, which means I get to break out the scarves and boots and even wear tights with skirts! Plus, there are all kinds of things just lying around outside to make crafts with!
I’m working on an acorn wreath with my mom. I’m sharing a picture of what it looks like right now. You could make one, too! Collecting acorns was fun because you realize that there are so many different types of acorns and they are all really cool looking. My mom and I baked these on a cookie sheet for about 10 minutes at 300 degrees to make sure there were no creepy crawlies living in them. (That would be icky!)
Once these are all on the wreath, we might paint it, but you could also just put a clear glaze on it to make it shiny. Add ribbons or leaves or even silk flowers in the colors of fall to make it even more unique!
Talk to ya later!
